According to police, the teen was shot in front of a Church at 9 p.m. on Friday, just steps away from the home he shared with his mom and brother.
No one knows exactly why Raphael posted “I’m dead” to his Facebook just hours before he was fatally shot.
Police described the gunman as 5-foor-6, 120 to 140 pounds, wearing a dark wool hat and ski mask.
Raphael’s Marmot parka retails for about $600.
Before collapsing from his injuries, Raphael made it into a convenience store where he said he had been attacked by a group of youths over his jacket.
A Facebook group has been established in his memory.
